A Muslim judge has been promoted to become the chief judge of Jersey City, becoming the first Muslim to hold this position.


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

“I’m extremely honored and excited to be appointed chief judge,” Ramy Eid, an Egyptian-American, said, reported.

“I look forward to building upon our successful operations as one of the most dynamic courts in the state, with many specialty courts handling complex issues, including mental health, domestic violence, and community court.”

Eid will fill the position that opened when Chief Municipal Judge Carlos Abad was appointed to serve on the Hudson County Superior Court

He must first be approved by the City Council of Jersey City on its meeting April 10, 2021.

Eid appointment was announced by Mayor Steve Fulop who said, “I have no doubt that Judge Eid’s tenacity and leadership skills will continue to lead our court system with policies outlined around fairness and equality.”

The appointment of Eid came on the same day that President Joe Biden announced the historic appointment of the first Muslim as a federal district judge.

If approved, Judge Zahid N. Quraishi would be a federal judge on the US District Court for the District of New Jersey, and the first-ever lifetime-appointed Muslim federal judge.
